• EAT Start the morning at the Terrace, overlooking the lily pond and cerulean sea, with
blueberry French toast and caramelized bananas,
then grab a beachfront seat at the Bayside for
conch stew or stone crab and sweet potato cakes
for lunch. Savor inventive Caribbean cuisine
like lobster carpaccio with osetra caviar in the
candlelit Great Room at night. Traditional afternoon tea in the Palm Court Lounge winks to the
resort’s colonial sugar-producing heritage, as do
the tastings of refined rums in The Cane Bar
with the resident “rummelier.”
• EXERCISE Try the latest cutting-edge water
sport — cycling across the sea. Sugar Beach
is the first resort to have the revolutionary
Schiller Bikes, a carbon-fiber hybrid of a catamaran and bike. Guests can pedal across the
natural marine reserve out front and espy the
colorful coral and underwater denizens below,
while metabolizing those dark rum hurricanes from the previous night.
• DON’ T MISS At the Rainforest Spa,
tucked into the lower slope of the Petit
Piton, wooden bridges lead to tree house
huts peeking over cascading springs and
plunge pools. For a soulful purification
ritual, relax in the Temescal, an Amerindian
steam dome, and breathe deep.
Glenorchy, New Zealand
ESCAPE THE TRAPPINGS of everyday life and snuggle yourself into the highest-rated small luxury lodge in the
world. The Blanket Bay Lodge is in one of the
most scenic spots on the planet, Glenorchy,
New Zealand, at the northern end of Lake
Wakatipu in the South Island region of Otago.
• BEDS There is no shortage of privacy
or amenities at Blanket Bay. The property
features five lodge rooms, three lodge
suites and four chalet suites that could be
converted to become staterooms if even
more space is needed. And all the accommo-
dations are situated to make the most of the
stunning lake and mountain views. Rates
start at $1,015.
• EATS Guests are invited to start their day
with a lavish complimentary breakfast —
words you don’t see together very often. The
most important meal of the day at Blanket
Bay includes bacon, eggs, muesli, cereals
and freshly made muffins. For lunch, the
Lake View Dining Room restaurant offers a
changing daily menu specializing in regional
cuisine, with choices ranging from roasted
beef filet to Thai carrot and coconut soup.
For a truly special and intimate evening,
consider reserving the Wine Cave to sample
some of New Zealand’s finest wines in a space
that accommodates six guests. Or if weather
permits, go alfresco on the terrace to take full
measure of the gorgeous surroundings.
